M$ "Improves" Internet ExploDer *YAWN*

"Nah. We only wanna almost be 'web compliant'—wouldn't wanna make Internet ExploDer fully meet common web standards."

At least, that's how I read Messysoft's latest as reported in this article.

"In IE7, we will fix as many of the worst bugs that web developers hit as we can, and we will add the critical most-requested features from the standards as well." —Internet Explorer lead program manager Chris Wilson

A new twist on the old saw, "There's a right way, a wrong way and the Microsoft way." Cluebat to Wilson and his team: "fixing the worst bugs" (and leaving the rest) is NOT going to make Internet ExploDer fully web-compliant--or even fully CSS2 compliant (the point of the article).

I do still use IE to check web pages in every now and then. Fully standards-compliant pages always display best in browsers other than Internet Exploder.

Which is one reason (of many) the title bar in my copies of Internet ExploDer reads,

"Internet exploder: the world's crappiest browser."

Internet ExploDer. *sigh* I'd rather even be trapped using the clunky Opera-wannabe Firefox than M$'s crappy browser.
